Each week, we’ll bring you a panel discussion with Canada’s leading journalists, columnists, politicos, and change makers discussing what’s happening in the newsphere.

This week we’re joined by writer and National Post columnist Sabrina Maddeaux & activist and National Post columnist Adam Zivo to explore what will define the upcoming session of Parliament, and if real action on housing will, a key election issue for all parties will make the agenda. Then, we cover the call for a woman to be appointed Minister of Defence — will it happen and can it change the toxic culture of the Canadian Armed Forces? Finally, we discuss Annamie Paul’s exit from leadership, what is the future of the Green Party and how did sexism, racism, and antisemitism play into her challenges?
